May You Be Blessed Birthday Card

This is the second birthday card today I made with an Our Daily Bread Designs stamp. I used this lovely Unscripted Sketch #191.
This sketch seemed perfect for a long, narrow greeting like the one I used from Our Daily Bread Designs. I love that sentiment because it says so much more than what is on the surface. If God made the earth with all its wonders and the universe of heavenly stars and planets, can anything be too hard for Him to do for us?
I was striving for lots of texture and happy colors to go with the rich Scriptural birthday blessing. My yellow gingham dp was embossed with a 5" x 7" Cuttlebug Plaid embossing folder, but it doesn't really show up in the photo.
The blue wood dp was from My Mind's Eye "Dolled Up." Close To My Heartt had a Bohemia Assortment with doily-like flowers and unique buttons. I only had two doilies, so my third element was one of the buttons overlapping the doilies. The Outdoor Denim Bakeer's twine, Pacifica ink, and the burlap ribbon were also from CTMH.
May the Lord Who made heaven and earth bless you this coming year!
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Burlap, lace and distressed barn board - Sa-weet!!! This is absolutely the perfect blend of elements that are so different from each other, but work beautifully together on your card! Wow - perfect execution of this weeks Unscripted sketch!

Did you intend for the ribbon to look like the Dove Noah released to look for dry land? At first glance I saw Gods Word, then Noahs arc riding the flood watrs, then the sun shining and then best for last, the "BOW", representing the Promise. He is the creator of heaven and earth and your card is wonderful.
Thank you for joining us at Word Art Wednesday.

Hi Vickie!

What a gorgeous card. I agree with Arnoldo, your card is so "tactile". My sister's cards are always so nicely layered up and I often enjoy hers for the "feel" of them. But the best part of all is your sentiment.

Thanks for showing!
